Pony, the express way to send email in Ruby

Overview

Ruby no longer has to be jealous of PHP's mail() function, which can send an email in a single command.

Pony.mail(:to => 'you@example.com', :from => 'me@example.com', :subject => 'hi', :body => 'Hello there.')

Any option key may be omitted except for :to.

Transport

Pony uses /usr/sbin/sendmail to send mail if it is available, otherwise it uses SMTP to localhost.

This can be over-ridden if you specify a via option

Pony.mail(:to => 'you@example.com', :via => :smtp) # sends via SMTP

Pony.mail(:to => 'you@example.com', :via => :sendmail) # sends via sendmail

You can also specify options for SMTP:

Pony.mail(:to => 'you@example.com', :via => :smtp, :smtp => {
  :host     => 'smtp.yourserver.com',
  :port     => '25',
  :user     => 'user',
  :password => 'pass',
  :auth     => :plain,           # :plain, :login, :cram_md5, no auth by default
  :domain   => "example.com"     # the HELO domain provided by the client to the server
}
